Glaucoma Support – Anytime, Anywhere

Find out how to access glaucoma support, anytime, anywhere

World Glaucoma Week 2021

As part of World Glaucoma Week 2021 (7 to 13 March), we spotlighted the different support channels we offer to patients and health care professionals. From the top of a hill or a trek through the woods to a supermarket aisle or the comfort of a sofa, support for those living with glaucoma is accessible whenever and wherever you may need it.

Take a look below at the different services we offer throughout the year.

Glaucoma self care

If you are living with glaucoma, it’s natural to feel anxious about how to manage the disease and what the future will hold. But with the right treatment and daily maintenance, sight loss is preventable. Glaucoma is a very common disease, and many people who have it are able to live a full and active life.

To help you manage your glaucoma, we’ve created a guide of practical tips you can use at home. You can find out what to expect at every stage of your journey with glaucoma, from diagnosis to daily management, as well as how to access online support.
